Vertigo Sound VSM-4 v1.5.215-R2R screenshot
Team R2R | 2024.02.18 | 24.7 MB
The valve distortion and saturation generators are based on the the W. Frank Custom Tube Desk circuitry from 1959 wich we brought back to life with my former company HE Studiotechnik. The W. Frank Custom Console is packed with huge transformers, clever valve circuits and passive filters.

The new VSM-4 plugin is not a successor or update of the VSM-3 Mix Satellite. Sonically it stands for itself but it comes with all the useful features of the VSM-2 Mix Satellite plus some more new functionality for your Mix and Mastering needs of today.

VSM-4 FEATURES
Transformer Emulation with Autogain and Bass Lift
Triode Emulation with Bias Control ( High/Low)
Pentode Emulation with Type Selector ( Dense/Clear)
Input Filter with Fixed Bands (VSM-2) and continuous Bandpass (Mode VSM-4)
MS funcionality for Triode and Pentode Saturation
MS and Distortion Solo for Triode and/or Pentode Stage
MS and LR Output Level Control
Scaleable GUI

Big fan of the old VSM3, thanks for this one R2R

According to dev, the diff :

VSM3 = FET + Diode
VSM4 = Tube (Triode + Pentode)
It makes no sense to say you’re not good at it. It’s like saying, “I’m not good at being a monk.” You are either living as a monk or you’re not.

Hey Stevie, can the VSM-4 be used in your “2nd harmonic” trick at the end of the mastering chain? Or is that only with the VSM-3 because of the FET component? Right now I’ve been using AA Jam for the 2nd harmonic - and happy with the sound - but curious about your thoughts on this.

If we speak about 2nd harmonic only,
VSM-3 is an emulation of FET that emulates tube sound qualities.
VSM-4 is an emulation of tubes like triode, pentode and also transformer

theoretically it should do the job with either the Pentode or Triode section but I haven't really confirmed it just yet. Will examine VSM4 soon and let you know.

EDIT : figured the Transformer section alone produce nice 2nd order harmonics that is more responsive to the low end. Combine it with Triode section can give nice clean 2nd order heavy harmonic pattern that's full frequency. Gotta be careful since there are pre/post emphasis EQ in play so the whole frequency response isn't flat. Check it with Plugin Doctor and find a good combo. Pentode section is kinda edgier more to 3rd order, for that task, it's not really suitable.

If you look up Stevie’s post in AudiioSex on mastering tricks, he gives a detailed explanation there. It’s an excellent post and I found many of the tips to be very useful.

google these 3 studios and check their credit lists, probably not as good as yours. all those tips was picked up from their videos/interview.

1. Lurssen Mastering
2. Infrasonic Mastering
3. Magic Garden Mastering

Also about your other issue, it's already discussed here : LINK

Hmm, not to sound disrespectful but why should I trust the mastering tips from someone that disclaims "I'm not a certified mastering engineer" and "These tips are just stuff I've picked up randomly"?

Is a 0.5db boost @ 40 Hertz really going to make my shitty bass "magically" sound like it was recorded through a $5000 hardware when most modern smartphones and headphone have low cuts at around 100hz? Also I believe that every song has specific mastering needs, and anyone that claims that they found the "secret sauce" (coincidentally while showcasing the product they are selling) is just straight up BS.

The plugin I'm talking about. IT seems more like a izotope/god particle-just-throw-it-in-the-master-and-call-yourself-an-engineer kind of thing.

this is offtopic, you have something to say, post it on the forum, there are few MEs in the thread, let's see what they think about all you said above.

about the 40Hz boost, it's about twisting the phase (combined with cut at 30Hz) as why it is done with parallel EQ instead of the usual serial EQ.

"Not to sound disrespectful" is exactly what you sound like.

Why would you blindly trust Stevie Dude's tips? He certainly isn't asking you to. The fact that he is disclaiming being a guru demonstrates his humility, that he is open to learning, improvement and being corrected if necessary.

Why not try the tips he shared for yourself and see if they give you good results, then share your findings? I'm sure he and others would be keen to hear your valued opinion.

And no, nothing will make your shitty bass magically sound like anything if you don't evaluate techniques yourself, no matter the source they arise from. Your comment also displays a fundamental misunderstanding of mastering. Mastering is about squeezing that last 1% from a mix. If your bass is 99% shit, what difference do you think 1% will make to the end result?

The one thing you are right about is that every mix has specific mastering needs. Nobody is disputing that. Just because Stevie talks about a few techniques doesn't mean there aren't other variables that he isn't talking about.

I, for one, find Stevie's posts interesting and appreciate his explorations - and that is coming from an engineer with well over 30 years pro experience.

As for Stevie (or myself) revealing 'real' identities (yes I know that wasn't your request), get a grip, this is AudioZ...

Sorry I'm not registered to the forums that's why I posted here and I know this is way out of topic.

"The fact that he is disclaiming being a guru demonstrates his humility". I'm not saying he is dishonest in any way, but a disclaimer before giving tips is a big red flag for me, just like the "I'm not a lawyer BUT you should do this...", if you really want serious lawyer counseling go to an actual certified lawyer.

"I'm sure he and others would be keen to hear your valued opinion." No ones cares about my opinion that's why I haven't share it.

"nothing will make your shitty bass magically sound like anything if you don't evaluate techniques yourself". this is EXACTLY my point, thank you. If a mix is done correctly in the low end I don't even think is necessary to modify it in the mastering process, hey if it ain't broken why fix it right? Boosting sub frequencies just because people say it sounds cool is a terrible idea if you don't have the proper gear and room treatment etc...

"Just because Stevie talks about a few techniques doesn't mean there aren't other variables that he isn't talking about." You are also right, my opinion here wasn't aiming at Steve, and by the way I appreciate his time in his detailed deep dives, but more to the other people that think that there are "magic tricks" already defined out there and see mastering more like a "drag-n-drop" process of just throwing plugins with defined configs and calling it a day.

I would honestly trust him if I could hear some of the masterings he has done but as you pointed out, his privacy is more valuable than these discussions...

organic sound, those who turn the knob up and down wildly will be disappointed. saturation should be used with care and sensitivity.

so far one of the best plugins of its kind that i have come across

This is a great sounding plugin but when I actually put it to the test some time back I actually prefer the VSM-3. I think the VSM-4 is much more broad in tone and likes to change more of the spectrum of what you're processing.

The VSM-3 always felt very focused and you could set it up to deal with specific ranges easier; it could just about touch the high end exclusively to add brilliance and excitement; the VSM-4 grabs much more so it can end up squashing the mids as well, which requires extra level adjustment, fine tuning... it's too easy to overdo it while trying to handle it.
